What time are people expected to arrive? Me and well groomed expect to be there some time after 16:00.

I have my replacement quickshifter fitted. Just cable ties, covers and other small bits to go on... then a test. I've got a new disk rotor as well but won't have time to fit it. Retail price £198.00. Trade price £99.00. I guess that's how they make their money. Mind you Aprilia pay them £15 labour to fit the QS. I've been at it for 2 hours so far!

I got a rueful smile from the dealer today. "Nobody does that sort of mileage on these things in a year". I told him I'll need the 12000 mile service in July...

Thanks Al. I've got the power to reciprocate if the needs arise.

ps. QS now works. Yee ha! It came from Italy in two days. Claim went in Tuesday, arriving in Newcastle this morning. Better service than some.

My mate has recently got himself a 2015 Multistrada Pikes Peak. It's spent more time being fixed than being ridden. Latest thing is the gear selector spring. Not a happy bunny.
